OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Say Hello to Your New Ride

In the market for a new ride? OK, we know you came here to window shop OTTBs, but let’s start with a different sort of ride: a 1989 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur.

Retired Racehorse Project and the Rolls-Royce Foundation are offering “Idle Dice” up for raffle — each $100 tax-deductible contribution gives you a chance to win the classic car. The car’s namesake: Idle Dice, a slow racehorse who went on to become the greatest show jumper of his era. He was the epitome of class, just like this magnificent Rolls-Royce.

Purchase tickets online at RRP or RRF. The drawing will be Nov. 19 at the Ocala Jockey Club International.

In the meantime, see “Idle Dice” at one of the following events!

Alright, back to OTTBs. Here are our three picks of the week, all fresh from CANTER Illinois!

Dezip (City Zip – Delake, by Meadowlake): 2011 16.2-hand Illinois-bred gelding

This boy has WOW written all over him. From his gorgeous white face to his beautiful, sleek build, you can imagine this one attracting attention wherever he goes. Very well mannered as well with lovely gaits.

Bellodini (Bernardini – Blithe, by Unbridled): 2010 16.2-hand Illinois-bred gelding

This big solid guy is just stunning to look at. He has a super adorable face and the best mane and forelock ever! A nice solid build and a good attitude to top it off. He looks like he will excel as a sport horse in any direction you wish to take him. His trainer said he is incredibly smart, too.

Awesome Heat (Latent Heat – Golden Trip, by Seeking the Gold): 2012 16-hand

There is nothing plain about this plain bay gelding. He is a stunner! He’s well behaved, happy and sound. Super easy personality. Standing a perfect 16 hands and at 5 years old, ready to move into a new career.
